An adaptation of the fairy tale about a monstrous-looking prince and a young woman who fall in love.
Belle's town is named Villeneuve, after "Beauty and the Beast" author Gabrielle-Suzanne Barbot de Villeneuve. Fittingly, Villeneuve also translates as Newtown.
Once upon a time, in the hidden heart of France, a handsome young prince lived in a beautiful castle. Although he had everything his heart desired, the prince was selfish and unkind. He taxed the village to fill his castle with the most beautiful ...
The witch in the woods has an owl. A barn owl is shown, but we hear a great horned owl hoot. Barn owls don't hoot.
The Walt Disney Pictures logo features the Prince's castle (with Villeneuve village in the background) in the evening before his masquerade party starts. A rosebush appears near the castle and the Enchantress picks a rose from it, leading into the opening.
